Universities seek to provide graduates transformative learning experiences to facilitate both lifelong learning and the acquisition of career-related knowledge. This presentation will describe the use of service learning as a transformative learning tool which integrates discipline specific learning objectives, practical experience, and structured opportunities for students to think critically. Reflective student writings and surveys associated with a service learning experience designed to promote literacy development in economically disadvantaged communities will be discussed. Results suggest service learning provided an opportunity for students to think critically while engaged in team-oriented experiences, widen cultural perspectives, and value community involvement. This presentation is intended for individuals interested in promoting active learning, cultural competence, and civic responsibility within the university curriculum.
